Open a file chooser dialog to select a file for input.
def file_selected(selection): if selection is None: py5.println("Window was closed or the user hit cancel.") else: py5.println("User selected " + selection) def setup(): py5.select_input("Select a file to process:", file_selected)
Open a file chooser dialog to select a file for input. After the selection is made, the selected File will be passed to the
callback function. If the dialog is closed or canceled,
None will be sent to the function, so that the program is not waiting for additional input. The callback is necessary because of how threading works.
This method has some platform specific quirks. On OSX, this does not work when the Sketch is run through a Jupyter notebook. On Windows, Sketches using the OpenGL renderers (
P3D) will be minimized while the select dialog box is open. This method only uses native dialog boxes on OSX.
Underlying Processing method: selectInput
select_input( prompt: str, # text prompt for select dialog box callback: Callable, # callback function after selection is made default_file: str = None, # default output file ) -> None
